Hello again,
See attached example.  I want to use INDIRECT to reference a cell that contains the worksheet name.  My formula works if I name the worksheet, e.g. data but not if I name it, e.g. 11-08-01.  Am I doing something wrong?  What would you suggest?

Does this work?

=COUNTIF(INDIRECT("'"&$E$4&"'!$D$5:$AC$100"),$B6)

You need the quote marks I think.
